Forms in Dreamweaver! PLEASE HELP ASAP

 12:37 pm on Apr 10, 2007 (gmt 0)

I keep creating forms in Dreamweaver but many people can't use them once they are up and running. Instead, the Internet Connection Wizard keeps popping up. I only need a simple form that anyone can go on, and once 'submit' is clicked, it sends me the results.

My old sites work, but I can't get newer ones just to send the information from any computer when clicked on.

Any help would be thankfully recieved! Please Help!

Welcome to WebmasterWorld y2mattdx,

the connection wizard pops up once they click submit?

check to see what you have in the form action

In the form action I have mailto:myaddress.

I'm prettu sure the form is ok, but peopel have contacted me as they havn't got internet wizard set up and simply just want to enquire to me through the form. I simply need the information left in various boxes to reach me from any computer and from any person.

Not sure if its too clear, im new to web design. If anyone knows what I mean or a way I can fix it, please let me know.

If you want the results mailed to you, the usual course is to use a script and this then depends on what type of server you are running. A type of Formmail will run on Apache, for example (although you need to make sure that you are using a safe script to avoid it being abused by spammers).
